Well, this is a very nice and appreciated description of your experience. Sorry it was so bad! It sounds to me like the tea is too strong. Probably a little too much leaf and too long brew times. When I give brew times I include the time it takes to pour the water in and pour the tea out. For the first couple infusions this often means "as fast as possible."emmy wrote: Did I do something wrong?

No, you are perfectly normal. Nobody in their right mind drinks young shen except for tea industry professionals trying to guess which of them will be good in 20-30 years. Of course, there are a lot of crazy people in the world.
